Wallasey's Robbie Green eventually closed out a 3-1 victory after a strong start against Lithuania's Darius Labanauskas, who impressed on his Lakeside debut.
"He was like a little bull terrier that wouldn't get off my leg," said 16th seed Green, who will play Peter Sajwani - Wilson's conqueror - in round two on Wednesday.
Gary Robson, seeded ninth at Frimley Green, eased to a 3-0 win over Belgian qualifier Cedric Waegemans.
Meanwhile, nine-time champion Trina Gulliver is through to the last eight of the women's event.
